Just a few weeks ago, a high school in Cooperstown, New York, decided to retire its R-word mascot.
C.J. Hebert, superintendent for the Cooperstown Central School District, said students approached him regarding their discomfort with the mascot that had been around for decades.
"I do think that times change and perspectives change, and certainly it's historically a time for us to reconsider what the name is," Hebert said.
That's a statement that makes Harjo feel her campaign has been worthwhile.
